The shopping started Friday during my lunch hour. I visited a Goodwill that is close to my office. Since I was just looking, I didn't get a cart. There are lingering red marks on my arms from trying to carry everything.
Want to see what I found for a whopping $7.18?

Saturday, I went out on the town shopping. First stop: the local Goodwill, of course. Wouldn't you think I would learn from Friday's trip to get a cart? I didn't. Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat their mistakes.
I found these unique glass coffee cups for $.50 each. I think they will be ideal for iced coffee or cappuccino. I also found this sweet and springy lotus bowl for $1.00. After I donated an extra dollar to Goodwill, I left the store with a full bag and $3.18 less in my wallet.
My next stop was to the local antique mall. This visit provided both the high point and the low point of my shopping excursion. I found an interesting glass chimney that I thought would be fun for creating different vignettes. What really excited me was a beautiful pink transferware bowl. It was only $3.50. SCORE! I was flying high as the clouds. My mind was all aflutter with ideas of how to implement this pretty little bowl into my spring decor....until I dropped my bag.
NO! Say it isn't so!
It is so....my interesting glass chimney.... my beautiful pink transferware bowl.... reduced to a bag of debris. Do you know how much it hurts to fall from a cloud onto the earth in a split second? OUCH!
What are ya goin' to do? Sometimes s%#t happens. I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and skulked away. Better luck next time.
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
I will be joining Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.
